CLASS: Hurts So Good: How Pain Disorders Can Affect Sexuality
Hurts So Good: How Pain Disorders Can Affect Sexuality
with Kirsten Schultz
Thursday, May 10, 8:30 pm
Kirsten has lived with chronic pain all their life. When they wanted answers about relationships, sex, illness, and more, they couldn't find much. This presentation will cover the basics of how illness, pain, and disability affect our sexy times. We'll talk about ways to fight that-- from sexual health care and medications to relationship dynamics and communication tips. Don't forget to bring your questions about accessible sex toys and gear, too!
This class is welcoming to people of all genders and orientations.
Kirsten Schultz is a sex educator and writer. Through their work as a queer disability activist, they have earned a reputation for tearing down barriers while mindfully causing constructive trouble. They know how hard it can be to live a full life while dealing with health issues, so that's why they work most closely with people living with chronic illness or disability, helping them to rediscover their lives after diagnosis.
Kirsten has worked with organizations all around the world, including Healthline, Pfizer, the University of Guelph, and the Arthritis Foundation. In addition, their work has been featured in articles from publications such as US News, Broadly, HelloFlo, and Everyday Health.
